this girl makes me smile

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Last week was a hard week.  It was Bible club week, which is enjoyable & exhausting.  On top of that, every one of our 3 girls got a stomach virus all on different days.  It was a nasty bug.  There was a lot of laundry!  I'll spare you all the details.  I had 2 sleepless nights...that I still feel like I'm recovering from one week later.

I've been tired.  I took only a handful of pictures of club stuff.  So I went to go look through those photos and I found these.  I barely remember taking them...and I can't tell you what day this was.  But they made me smile.  I love bathtime pictures.

First of all, my toddler is contained...when else does that happen? Second, she's happy which sometimes (I'll be honest) feels like a rare moment in this fussy-toddler-phase.  Finally, for all of it's challenges I love this age.  I have a feeling that I will treasure these pictures more than most.  Her little chubby hand.  Her last baby curls (aka the rat my sister calls it).  Her fascinations with water & bath toys...which lead to water everywhere.  All of this encourages me when I stop to think about it.  And as one-tired-mom...I needed the encouragement and the smile that this little girl brings to my face.
